Freshman JaCoby Stevens could be seeing a second position move in as many months.

Stevens, the highly touted safety signee that coaches moved to receiver in camp, worked with the F- backs/tight ends and the running backs during the 10-minute portion of practice that reporters were allowed to watch Wednesday. 

Also, running back Derrius Guice missed a third straight practice, while recovering from what appeared to be a knee injury he suffered against Mississippi State. Coach Ed Orgeron said earlier Wednesday that Guice is "very questionable" for the game Saturday against Syracuse. 

Stevens, meanwhile, could be sliding into a new role. Coaches moved him to receiver at the start of preseason camp in effort to both get him on the field quicker and shore up a thin position. 

Other practice observations:

  • Safety Ed Paris was a new absentee at practice. Paris has rotated this season with freshman starter Grant Delpit. 
  • F-back JD Moore returned to practice after missing Tuesday's drills, while donning a gold jersey signifying limited contact for injury. 
  • Corey Thompson remained in a gold injury jersey on Wednesday, but he again participated in practice at full speed and in full pads. 
  • DE Rashard Lawrence, for a second straight day, practiced in full speed and in full pads. Orgeron expects Lawrence to play "some snaps" against the Orange, he said earlier in the day. 
  • OL Donavaughn Campbell, who's been in and out of practice, missed drills again Wednesday. Several other players continue to miss practice: edge rusher Andre Anthony (ankle injury), DB Kristian Fulton (presumed suspension), edge rusher Sci Martin (presumed suspension) and NT Ed Alexander (hand injury). Alexander will not play this week, Orgeron said. DE Frank Herron attended practice for a third straight day, but he is not expected to play Saturday.
